Best Type of Flooring for Gymnasiums and Fitness Centers

Many of us have childhood recollections of a highly lacquered gymnasium floor brightly reflecting the light cast down from on high. Poised at the entryway with one foot in midair ready to step upon the inviting surface, a voice finds you from out of nowhere, saying, “STOP, no street shoes allowed in the gym!”. Recoiling back from committing this infraction; turning and walking away is the only option. Flooring has come a long way since those days; fitness and exercise has changed over the years, and as a result, flooring has had to adapt and evolve to meet those changing needs.

Commercial flooring is a big investment and hopefully that investment will have a long life while maintaining its appeal, functionality and wear-resistance.
